A work that poses provocative questions about perception and reality. It is a parody of Victorian society where all existence is limited to length and breadth - its inhabitants unable even to imagine a third dimension. It provides an overview of this world - its physics and metaphysics, its history, customs and religious beliefs.

Rezensionen
At once a classic of science fiction, a playful brainteaser about geometry, a pointed satire of Victorian manners and, finally, a strangely compelling argument about reason, faith, and the greatest mysteries of the universe. The Wall Street Journal
